This was taken a couple of weeks ago at my village pond. We often pass by the pond on our weekend dog walk, and I've started to take the camera out more often.

Glad I did this time. I had the Tamron 90mm macro on for this shot, hand held while kneeling precariously close to the water's edge!

There were some dragon flies about too, but they were far too skittish to take a photo of, but these common blue damselflies would stop on a reed for 20 seconds or so, allowing me to get a little closer.

Thanks for looking, comments welcome as always.

Immaculate shot with pin sharp focus on the damselfly.
